"As sports boomed into a multibillion-dollar industry, newspapers had to step up and expand their coverage to meet the insatiable appetite of their readers. No one did that better than The Dallas Morning News."
—Pete Alfano, former sportswriter for The New York Times and Fort Worth Star-Telegram
"I wish I'd had a book like this as a reference and inspiration when I was a journalism student."
—Melissa Isaacson, journalist, author, and lecturer at Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications, Northwestern University
"Since I moved back to Texas, I do the same this every day. I get up, go downstairs, start my coffee, and read The Dallas Morning News, just like I did when I was coaching the Cowboys....I love the sports section. Once you read these stories, I think you'll see why."
—Gene Stallings, award-winning head coach (Texas A&M and Alabama)
